San Diego DUI can lead to disciplinary action in the medical field

Once the agency finds out you are facing a San Diego DUI, the ball may be rolling on disciplinary action. If you’re a nurse, for example, a San Diego DUI may lead to the Board of Registered Nursing placing you on probation, requiring you to:

  • Abstain from drug and alcohol use
  • Submit to random drug and alcohol testing
  • Attend Alcohol Anonymous meetings

The same discipline holds true if you are a doctor.  If you’re a doctor, a San Diego DUI can lead to the discipline of your physician’s license.  Furthermore, if a healthcare professional is convicted of San Diego DUI, it can mean that he or she is not allowed to be a Medicare or MediCal-approved provider. A San Diego DUI can also affect a healthcare professional’s employment, especially since DUIs show up on employment background checks.

Other licensing agencies can impose discipline

Agencies vary on what they do with a San Diego DUI.  For example, with the department of real estate., they argue that when someone is convicted of a San Diego DUI, it reflects on their character and judgment and not in a good way.
